Mercedes-Benz has been teasing us with the next-generation CLS for some time now with the F800 Style Concept and more recently with the Shooting Break Concept. Well, it seems like tuner Lorinser couldn’t wait much longer for Mercedes to unveil the new CLS so they decided to release a sketch of a modified version of the four-door-coupe.
Lorinser’s interpretation of the next-generation CLS includes larger air intakes, extended fenders, 21-inch alloy wheels and much more. Oh, and the tuner says it won’t stop their – engine and interior upgrades are also in the works.
The new 2011 Mercedes-Benz CLS is expected to make its debut at the 2010 Paris Motor Show in October.

Sports dress for the next generation Mercedes CLS
Lorinser grants a first glance at its designer version
The new Mercedes CLS-class will be available for delivery to customers in 2011. Sport-Service Lorinser, the recognised specialist for Mercedes refining, is already working on options to individualise technology and design, far in advance of the market introduction. A well thought out concept is necessary to provide the four-door sports-limousine with a stylish and cutting edge profile. This requires a lot of experience, because upgrading a vehicle that is not yet for sale can be quite difficult – but not for the well trained Lorinser personnel.
“We will distribute our tuning-version globally in 45 countries, therefore a sophisticated body-design is required.”, explained Marcus Lorinser, owner of Sportservice Lorinser. The Lorinser-interpretation emphasises the sportive features with strikingly impressive innovation. Large air intake grills characterise the distinctive appearance of the front-end and enable an optimal fresh air supply to engine and brakes. The extended fenders not only enhance the masculine appearance of the car, but also provide space for the 21-inch light-alloy wheels.
But not only the styling will be optimised: Chassis, engine and interior is also upgraded at Lorinser-manufacturing. Featuring these upgrades, the Lorinser-CLS will advance to “eye candy” on the luxury boulevards of all major cities.
